LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2015) - GAWK Inc. (OTC PINK: GAWK) announced today that it has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Southridge Advisors II, LLC, an institutional investor, providing for debt purchase of up to $3 million, in addition to the $5,000,000 equity commitment announced on April 1.

This allows management to focus its efforts and allocate any available resources towards revenue generating activities while Southridge relieves the company of servicing its existing debt in favor of equity.

Scott Kettle, CEO of GAWK, Inc., said, "Southridge shares our enthusiasm for our plan to acquire data centers and other strategic businesses within the cloud computing and Voice over IP sector across the United States. We expect to be offering a la carte services to small to-medium businesses in the cities where we purchase data centers, hiring local employees and creating tax bases for those cities.
